Last year in 2019, we had a beautiful long tour to India for almost 20 days from our college. We were taken to major places of some beautiful cities. Whenever I have nothing else to do, I just look back at those days where we all were far from home, in a different country, living the best days of our life, I always end up smiling and really look forward to take my entire family to visit India once.
The following things you will read is completely based on what a normal college student was able to grasp and see in that tour. This series will have six different parts, explaining all the things I experienced and I saw, because I don’t want to bore you guys by lengthening it all in a single part! Hope you all like it!
Thank you for loving my last post about Delhi. If you haven’t read that then you can do it by clicking here: Mumbai – Goa – Delhi . Many of you guessed Jaisalmer as our next destination and Yes, you all are absolutely right!
“Jaisalmer- The Golden City”
After some hefty bags full of shopping that we did in Delhi, we went towards the golden city next. Jaisalmer was one of the destination I was not prepared at all for. On the way to Jaisalmer, in the train we came across an uncle who was the sweetest person ever. He said that he was an army and he described us about Jaisalmer, it’s history and everything in that ride. When we stopped in the platform for the snacks, he even suggested us the famous snack of that place and as he suggested it was VERY YUMMY!
The sand that covered the entire train while it was speeding through the desert in that ride was the funniest of all. We all were so unprepared and was caught all of a sudden by the huge mass of sand entering in the train. I still laugh remembering that.
After we got off the train, we went to our hotel which was just below the Jaisalmer Fort! We could clearly see the fort Infront of us from our balcony. After getting fresh and eating our lunch, I noticed how beautiful was the hotel we were kept in. It felt like a royal palace itself. Among all the hotels we stayed, Jaisalmer’s hotel was my favorite!
After admiring the hotel enough, we went for the desert safari next. It was my first camel ride as well as first time in desert. I was so happy and excited. My Friend and I shared the ride and our camel’s name was Hritik Roshan ( Name of a Bolywood Celebrity) , while other’s had salman, tiger, and many more. Irony is a camel named Tiger :’D
After almost an hour at the desert, we went down and sat for the cultural show of that place. It was so mesmerizing to watch and the dance, fire acts, songs everything was so beautiful. After that we danced freely along with the performers and went back to hotel later at night.
Next day we went to Jaisalmer fort and all other beautiful forts and temples around that place. I have always been so intrigued by the museums and all other historical monuments so Jaisalmer forts and other various forts were so beautiful to observe and be in. The forts we went to had so many antique instruments and objects that cannot be found anywhere now. The beds, the dishes everything there were so antique and held so much of history. They all seem to be deteriorating day by day and looked like they needed a good care but still they were showing us how old the history of Jaisalmer forts are!
Though we were only able to stay there for a day, Jaisalmer has imprinted its mark on my heart for forever. I would absolutely love to go back there and enjoy some more days in that beautiful place.
Overall, I found Jaisalmer to be so beautiful and quite underrated. I recommend everyone to be there once and see by yourself how majestic this place really is.
